Symbols for Character Art

This module defines single- and multi-line symbols.

EXAMPLES:

sage: from sage.typeset.symbols import *

sage: symbols = ascii_art('')
sage: for i in range(1, 5):
....:     symbols += ascii_left_parenthesis.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
....:     symbols += ascii_right_parenthesis.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
sage: for i in range(1, 5):
....:     symbols += ascii_left_square_bracket.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
....:     symbols += ascii_right_square_bracket.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
sage: for i in range(1, 5):
....:     symbols += ascii_left_curly_brace.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
....:     symbols += ascii_right_curly_brace.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += ascii_art(' ')
sage: symbols
            ( )             [ ]             { }
        ( ) ( )         [ ] [ ]         { } { }
    ( ) ( ) ( )     [ ] [ ] [ ]     { } { } { }
( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] { } { } { } { }

sage: symbols = unicode_art('')
sage: for i in range(1, 5):
....:     symbols += unicode_left_parenthesis.character_art(i)
....:     symbols += unicode_art(' ')
....:     symbols += unicode_right_parenthesis.character_art(i)

sage: for i in range(1, 5):

class sage.typeset.symbols.CompoundAsciiSymbol(character, top, extension, bottom, middle=None, middle_top=None, middle_bottom=None, top_2=None, bottom_2=None)

Bases: sage.typeset.symbols.CompoundSymbol

character_art(num_lines)

Return the ASCII art of the symbol

EXAMPLES:

sage: from sage.typeset.symbols import *
sage: ascii_left_curly_brace.character_art(3)
{
{
{
class sage.typeset.symbols.CompoundSymbol(character, top, extension, bottom, middle=None, middle_top=None, middle_bottom=None, top_2=None, bottom_2=None)

Bases: sage.structure.sage_object.SageObject

A multi-character (ascii/unicode art) symbol

INPUT:

Instead of string, each of these can be unicode in Python 2:

  • character – string. The single-line version of the symbol.

  • top – string. The top line of a multi-line symbol.

  • extension – string. The extension line of a multi-line symbol (will be repeated).

  • bottom – string. The bottom line of a multi-line symbol.

  • middle – optional string. The middle part, for example in curly braces. Will be used only once for the symbol, and only if its height is odd.

  • middle_top – optional string. The upper half of the 2-line middle part if the height of the symbol is even. Will be used only once for the symbol.

  • middle_bottom – optional string. The lower half of the 2-line middle part if the height of the symbol is even. Will be used only once for the symbol.

  • top_2 – optional string. The upper half of a 2-line symbol.

  • bottom_2 – optional string. The lower half of a 2-line symbol.

EXAMPLES:

sage: from sage.typeset.symbols import CompoundSymbol
sage: i = CompoundSymbol('I', '+', '|', '+', '|')
sage: i.print_to_stdout(1)
I
sage: i.print_to_stdout(3)
+
|
+
print_to_stdout(num_lines)

Print the multi-line symbol

This method is for testing purposes.

INPUT:

  • num_lines – integer. The total number of lines.

EXAMPLES:

sage: from sage.typeset.symbols import *
sage: unicode_integral.print_to_stdout(1)

sage: unicode_integral.print_to_stdout(2)


sage: unicode_integral.print_to_stdout(3)



sage: unicode_integral.print_to_stdout(4)




class sage.typeset.symbols.CompoundUnicodeSymbol(character, top, extension, bottom, middle=None, middle_top=None, middle_bottom=None, top_2=None, bottom_2=None)

Bases: sage.typeset.symbols.CompoundSymbol

character_art(num_lines)

Return the unicode art of the symbol

EXAMPLES:

sage: from sage.typeset.symbols import *
sage: unicode_left_curly_brace.character_art(3)
